Polish artisans have more than 80 names to describe types of amber, from flame and honey to clouded and woolly. Often found along the Baltic Sea, amber has been popular in jewelry for centuries. Here, teardrops of honey amber are paired with sterling silver leaves in earrings that reflect an early-20th-century art deco style.


Handcrafted in Poland. 1 1/2"L.

Mined in Sicily, Burma, Romania, Poland, and Mexico, amber is actually the fossilized resin of ancient trees, and is among the oldest stones used for human adornment. It has been called the gold of the sea because the most extensive deposits are found along Baltic shores. The Greeks, to whom amber represented the tears Apollo shed as he was banished from Olympus, called amber "electron" because of its tendency to attract lightweight objects when rubbed.

I purchased these earrings as a gift for my mother-in-law for Christmas. I have always admired items in the National Geographic Catalogue, but this was my first purchase. These earrings stood out to me as a lovely item for a very good price. I was very impressed when they arrived, and they are just as lovely as the photograph. They seem well made, and my mother-in-law very much liked them when she opened her present.

The service was so fast my head spun! That was great. Products were packaged carefully. The box for the earrings was shameful and looked like it came from a Dollar General store. Was ashamed to give it to my daughter-in-law in that cheap paper box. The silver looks like plastic with silver paint, but otherwise they are beautiful. Expected a better box from Nat Geo.

Lovely, but too low for me.

Pros

  • Beautifully Made
  • Just As Pictured
  • Pretty Color

Cons

  • Sat Too Low On Earlobe

Best Uses

    These are beautiful earrings. They are just as pictured. I had to return them however, because they sat so low on my earlobes that they seemed droopy and weighted. Maybe my earring holes are just too low???

      Best Uses

        I have a bracelet (over 60 years old) that is this eact style, and needed earrings to go with it. These are perfect. They can be worn casually, or with a more elegant outfit. Not being a heavy piece of jewelry is a huge plus!

          These earrings are unique and gorgeous. They're fairly large so they stand out against my long hair, but they're not heavy. They dress up or down and are showstoppers when my hair is up. The sterling is nicely worked and the amber pieces are one-of-a-kind. Natural stone jewelry should be checked periodically to make sure the stones are still tightly attached.

            I love amber and was thrilled to receive these as a gift, after mentioning that I would buy them for myself. It was as described. However, after about a year of only occasional wear, the amber fell off one of the earrings. Extremely upset!

            I purchased the whole series of that type of jewelry for Mother's Day gift and it was a big hit. (I liked it too.)

            Very cheap feeling. Amber is nice but the silver feels cheap and almost like silver plate.
            Not worth the price.
            Very disappointed in Nat.G for carrying this.
            Felt ripped off.

                The earrings are even prettier than the picture! The color is very rich, and they catch the light nicely.

                These earings are beautiful, not for everday as they are quite large and hang down, but for occaisional use, they really get great compliments.
